VARIETY Fox Searchlight has set a May 5 limited release date for its mystery-drama “My Cousin Rachel,” starring Rachel Weisz and Sam Claflin.

Holliday Grainger, Iain Glen, and Pierfrancesco Favino also star in the story of a young Englishman who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin, believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms.

My Cousin Rachel” was previously adapted into a 1952 film by Nunnally Johnson and directed by Henry Koster. Olivia de Havilland starred with Richard Burton, who earned his first of his seven Academy Award acting nominations for his role as Philip Ashley.

Filming took place last spring in England and Italy. Fox Searchlight announced the news Friday on Twitter.

  1. They not only need to see other people, they need to see other movies! Instead of Waiting for Superman, try August to June or Race to Nowhere!
